    Oil well explosion kills two workers, injures nine in West Texas
    Two oil well workers died and nine suffered minor cuts and bruises Wednesday after a high-pressure explosion in a West Texas county that is lightly populated but richly saturated with oil. The two bodies were found about 20 feet from a wellhead that was...
  • College runners take the latest in shoe technology out for a spin

    College runners take the latest in shoe technology out for a spin
    Can your footwear speed you up? We gave four new running shoes, each touting an impressive design technology, to four college runners. One shoe was super-flexible, one super-bouncy, another super-flat and another super-light. The verdict: Set your...
  • Ideas swarm in Laline Paull's 'The Bees'

    Ideas swarm in Laline Paull's 'The Bees'
    Rational animals are a staple of children's literature — and, in some cases, adult literature as well. I think of Richard Adams' 1974 novel "Watership Down," in which a thoughtful crew of rabbits sets out to find a new home, or Daniel Evan Weiss'...
  • TV ratings: iHeart Radio Music Awards solid, 'Grey's Anatomy' up

    TV ratings: iHeart Radio Music Awards solid, 'Grey's Anatomy' up
    Between Fox's "American Idol" and NBC's iHeart Radio Music Awards, Thursday night television seemed dominated by wannabe pop-chart-toppers and those who have already made it big, but CBS emerged on top in the ratings with its comedy lineup.   The iHeart...
  • 'Mad Men' recap: The Valentine's Day massacre

    'Mad Men' recap: The Valentine's Day massacre
    “Mad Men” is almost always more successful when it approaches Important Social Issues obliquely rather than head-on. Last year’s “The Flood” was widely panned for its awkward and heavy-handed depiction of Martin Luther’...
  • 'Big Bang,' 'Grey's' Top Thursday; Music Awards Show Boosts NBC, Sinks 'Idol'

    Veterans "The Big Bang Theory" on CBS and "Grey's Anatomy" on ABC were the top ratings draws for young adults Thursday, a night that saw acceptable week-2 scores for the same nets' "Bad Teacher" and "Black Box," respectively. NBC improved its standing...
  • Are good vibrations in store as cinemas amp up film experience?

    In front of me, the movie screen starts at the floor and rises so high it's like seeing "Divergent" on the side of a building. At the moment warrior princess Tris, played by a fierce Shailene Woodley, is about to jump onto a speeding train. I can feel the...
  • Alsop, BSO deliver explosive account of Shostakovich's Twelfth Symphony

    Alsop, BSO deliver explosive account of Shostakovich's Twelfth Symphony
    An emperor and a dictator rule over the latest Baltimore Symphony Orchestra program, which turns out to be benevolent for us commoners who like noble music-making. Friday night's concert at Meyerhoff Hall was one of the most riveting and unified the BSO...
  • Neil Shubin tells the story of us in 'Your Inner Fish'

    Neil Shubin tells the story of us in 'Your Inner Fish'
    Moving downward from the shoulder, the arms of Neil Shubin, fish paleontologist, are built like this: one bone, two bones, lots of bones, digits. The same is true for a bird's wing, a leopard's forward leg and the front fins of Tiktaalik, the ancient...
  • Disagreement over agreement

    A member of an editors' group on Facebook posed this question yesterday: "Peristalsis is a series of muscle contractions that move/moves along the digestive tract." Move or moves? There followed a something less than edifying exchange of views and...
  • Review: 'Your Inner Fish' on PBS imparts smart human anatomy lesson

    Ever since Charles Darwin made his way to the Galapagos, we've heard a lot about that fateful moment when some previously water-bound creature pulled itself up from the slowly receding seas, took a breath and began the eons-long march to humanity....
